Ball Greezy - “Toe Down” (2012)
After a couple of attempts at being pretty mainstream. and consequently pretty boring, Ball Greezy comes back into form with “Toe Down.” This might seem like a weak attempt at a Future-like mumbled sing-rap style but the Haitian descendant very deliberately mimics an ambiguous West Indian accent to add to the ridiculousness of whatever is toe down.
He reminds me of that desperate friend who likes to make it seem like they can game any girl but since they talk about it so much you know better. It’s silly enough to be entertaining.
“Shone” was one of the biggest hits of the jook movement and got as much radio play as the other jook standout “I’m So High” by Grind Mode. What’s impressive is that he stole the spotlight on “Dangerous” from local favorite Ice Berg. When the beat breaks his knack for making catchy melodies is shown in how he self-loops parts of his bars. It’s a poorly mixed track that turns out being a jam partly because Ball Greezy.
